CAFÉ VOILA: AUTHENTIC ASIAN FLAVORS AT YOUR DISPOSAL

CAFÉ VOILA:  AUTHENTIC ASIAN FLAVORS AT YOUR DISPOSAL

I could say that our group are all well-versed and acquainted with Southeast Asia, ranging from culture, landmarks and most importantly cuisine.  We have been traveling around Southeast Asia even way before we entered the world of travel blogging. 

And in one weekend, the group converged enroute Tagaytay City for a staycation at Crosswind Resort Suites after several months of hiatus.  And due to distance from the city proper and the unbearable heat of the summer, we decided to dine at Café Voila, situated just at the main gate of the hotel.


As soon as we entered the restaurant, the vibrant interior colors, wooden furniture, ceramics and sculptures were apparent.  The colors itself remind us of our colorful escapades in Southeast Asia and without any expectations set, we were now seated for a bountiful Asian cuisine.

It was a fun dining experience and we could feel the passion of the servers in providing us the authentic Asian dining experience that we aim for.

My favorite was the Vietnamese spring rolls, which reminded me of its country of origin as I have been a frequent visitor of this country since 2011.  The spring rolls platter actually consists of a variant from Thailand, Philippines and Vietnam.

The Homemade Chicken Pork Adobo was likewise a standout cuisine, which I will surely recommend as a must-try.  With a tender chicken and pork meat mixed with a unique blend of vinegar, garlic and soy sauce, a number of cups of rice was inevitable.

And to complete the dining experience, we were served with the best-seller Salted Caramel Cheesecake, the Black Sticky Rice with Mango from Thailand and a bowl of Gula Melaka in Coconut Cream and Palm Sugar from Malaysia.

Without a clue, even from the restaurant’s name which sounds Westernized for me, it comes as a surprise that authentic (or close to) Southeast Asian cuisine is within our reach.  We get to wander and acquaint ourselves with our neighboring countries through the food Café Voila offers.
